This is now our choice to stay while visiting the area. We have been visiting the Bennington area for the last fifteen years, occasionally twice a year. We have stayed at B & B and hotels in Vermont while on various visits to our daughter and family in the area. This year we opted to try renting a house since we were staying Thanksgiving week. Best decision we could have made.
The location of the house is centrally located in southwest Vermont with reasonable driving access to New York, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire.
There are many attractions for anyone to enjoy. No matter what your interests are: history, active life style, sporting events, touring, arts, shopping or just enjoying the walks and views in quiet relaxation, it is all available from the house
The house is welcoming, warm and a great place to settle in...just like being at home away from home. The house is walking distance from the Revolutionary War monument, museum, cemetery, historic New England church and golf course with public restaurant. Downtown Bennington is just a longer walk or short drive away. A small town atmosphere with friendly people to greet you.
A short drive away allows the usual big name stores like WalMart.
Open the from door and you feel like a its a step into the past.
The interior of the house provides plenty of rooms with welcoming furnishings to have the family visit or get away to relax with isolation and quiet. The number of books provides an invitation to browse and relax by the fire place with a wood fire on a snowy evening. We choose to avoid the phone, internet and TV while away, but the house accommodates. The house is well appointed, clean and maintained, as described. The owner is well organized and provides copious communication and information to easily adapt to the surroundings, and appointments while a local young lady serves can help if required. No problems or issues.
We enjoyed hiking with our dog off leash in a different area every day, a visit to Williams College, shopping in Manchester, breakfast at the Blue Benn, dinner at the Country Club, and Bennington Station...the snow and wintery scenes.
Most of all we enjoyed our family together at "our house" with the two children exploring the rooms, finding books to read, hiding out, playing games or just sharing stories with no distractions...all while having a wood burning fireplace blazing to keep late November cold nights cozy!
What an experience! Highly recommended!
